Summary

King has been one of the loudest Republican Party voices on foreign policy and a defender of President Donald Trump, representing a district that has shifted more Democratic in recent years.Story Continued Below“It’s going to be an extremely difficult seat for the Republican Party to hold,” former Suffolk County Republican Chairman John Jay LaValle said. Grechen Shirley, whose campaign successfully pushed for a 2018 FEC decision that lets candidates spend their campaign funds on child care, has spent the past year creating a national PAC focused on helping Democratic mothers win office."I’ve heard from many encouraging supporters across the district, and with so much on the line for our community, I am seriously considering another run for Congress,” Grechen Shirley said in a statement. On the Republican side, it’ll be a harder haul than what King faced, Levy said, but that doesn’t mean there’s not widespread interest from officials in both Suffolk and Nassau counties.LaValle floated state Sen. Phil Boyle, Oyster Bay Councilman Steve Labriola and Islip Town Board Member Trish Bergin as contenders who would be interested with party backing.
